Virgin Steele's David DeFeis gives us another weekly studio update about the progress on the new album, "The Black Light Bacchanalia," reporting that they're now in the "pre-mix" stages. (Read Update #1, Update #2, and Update #3.)

Greetings & Salutations Eternal, Faithful Metal Listeners,

I am pleased to say that all the guitar solos are now complete, and they continue the tradition of crafting a song within a song. I like for the solos to be statements within themselves, that have a proper beginning a climax and a conclusion. This has once again been achieved. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with both Edward & Josh on the solos, and I am thankful to them for being so conscientious and attentive to the material. I am now compiling all the tracks, and doing whatever stray its of vocal harmonies need to be done...In short we are in a pre-mix phase now. The new gear has arrived, and I am taking full advantage of it, sleeping about 4 hours at most, as I am completely possessed by these sounds and I wish for the album to arrive in reality at sounding the way it does in my head...

The lyrics have gotten more and more involved, and the material has dictated a specific approach in putting them across...I think this Work is frenzied, quite insane, certainly Epic, Bombastic, Romantic, very heavy...but the musicality always shines through...

Until we meet again...& Beyond...stay Forever...INVICTUS....
David DeFeis
